This album of 12 character sketches for piano dates from the ‘Samedi-soirs’ of Rossini’s last years in Paris. These short pieces are frequently witty, sometimes virtuosic, always engaging, and the Netherlands-based Paolo Giacometti plays them on a restored 1858 Pleyel piano with appropriate deftness and admirable musicality.
